Lock Levels

South Dakota currently observes the following minimum lock levels for Waze road types:

 Freeway  - 4
 Major Highway  (MH) - 3
 Minor Highway  (mH) - 3
 Primary Street  (PS) - 2

The  Ramp  road type is to be locked at the level of road it serves.

i.e. a ramp connected to a Freeway is locked at 5, a ramp serving a Major Highway, multi-level intersection is locked at 3, etc.

 Street  All others - 1

Note: These are minimums and, for protection, certain segments may be at higher lock levels. Locks should be applied after the segments are correct. Remember you are putting your name on it, make sure it is correct.

Interstates - I-xx
US Highways - US-xx
